I still have a SunOS 5.8 CAD machine lurking about the office. I found this command
du -sk * | sort -m | head
that i run in /var, and it turns out that the /var/crash directory is pretty large. so i was wondering if it is OK to delete the sub-directories in the crash directory? I thought it would be much easier to just delete the crash directory, but i was guessing that unix needs it.
